About This File

This is a localisation patch which changes Doom to use British spellings. It replaces the status bar graphic and changes some of the internal messages using dehacked.

Use british.wad when playing Doom 1 or Final Doom: Plutonia.

Use britd2.wad when playing Doom 2.

Use brittnt.wad When playing Final Doom: TNT:Evilution.

No, sorry but you're wrong. Britain has used the short scale (1 billion = 1000 million) since the 1970s. The long scale (1 billion = 1 million million) has not had widespread official or popular use in Britain for a long time now.

Five stars because it shows the nit pickiness of our lovely british allies. :P Canadians and Americans need not to look at this, unless they want to feel a taste of England. Nice attempt at making Doom look like it came from British developers. ~cson

It's odd. "Badass" is inherently American and just changing ass to arse doesn't work. "Bad" is an Americanism and "badarse" doesn't flow properly. It should be "big arseholes" or "big fuckers". Arse isn't quite the same as ass; there are subtleties. In Britain you can kick someone's arse, and you can kick arse, but you'd rarely describe a thing as being kick-arse.

So, you (fraggle) want to be as prissy and nitpicky as possible and create a british localization patch, but you can't even do it right as described by the reviewers above. I am very dissapointed. Do you even think that even a british doomer is going to play with this loaded up every time?

@reviewer 2: apparently you can use the word "kick-arse" as an englishman (source: id=11804). Anyway, this is one of the most pointless and redundant mods out there. If I really wanted to localize my doom into the britfag version, I would use the blessed engine, that has funny british messages and a good status bar.

Splendid stuff old bean. There are only two things I like about the US, one: they made DOOM, and two: it's 3,000 miles away! Anyway our billion is bigger than theirs. 4/5 -jb

      Nice details and visuals. Maybe bitt claustrophobic but that's not weakness at all and i kinda like it. Gameplay is what ruining the map. For six months of work the gameplay feel very unbalanced and bad. Lot of stronger enemies appear on a place where you can't move properly.

      The visuals of the map is rich in details, but they look somewhat erratic and do not form a solid style. Although, some of the author's decisions looks new for me. If you be careful enough, then this map may well bring positive impressions of the gameplay. Lock a player in a narrow space with strong opponents is controversial idea, but an experienced player can get good trial from fights by finding a winning strategy. In general, the map does not leave the desire to go through it again. I recommend this map for seekers of hard and challengind gameplay.

      Just a cool ZDoom map with well balanced gameplay. I was run through it with pleasure.

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74

      A quarter of a million monsters in a gigantic flat square room. It is said to be for stress testing source ports (and your PC?), otherwise it's on the other side of crazy. It took my PC nearly two minutes to load the wad (I thought it had crashed) and I took less than two seconds to die. At least it ran - the author says he never even managed that.
       
      The first screenshot has a high viewpoint because an Archvile lifted me. The second shows it in the Eureka editor; seeing only about 4% of the area, and every red square is a heavyweight monster (yellow selecting a caco).  and Doomguy is in the bottom left corner. Eureka was crawling, almost unusable - how did the author even build this?
